For what it's worth, GitHub recognizes these extensions for
Markdown-formatted README files: md, mkd, mkdn, mdown, and markdown. My
sense, from scanning various GitHub repositories, is that md and markdown
are the most popular extensions.

The iOS text editor Elements recognizes these: md, mdwn, mdown,
and markdown.

In the great Unix tradition of laziness, I use md.
